"The BIM test drive I attended magnified the speed and ease of developing a model using the BIM6x template, and illustrated the potential for improved coordination of the entire design/build team."

"BIM6x combines the business support of Visual Motion with the ARCHICAD expertise of ArchiLINK in one superior organization. Visual Motion has long been a source of sales and support for Graphisoft’s ARCHICAD. Chris Clark’s support goes far beyond that and he is my go-to person for any ARCHICAD related issues. ArchiLINK’s continuing education and training is world-class. I’m excited to have the power of both together."
